Warnings!

  • Forever Clueless™ administrator @Not_Oles has no "technical background" and only "limited technical skills. . . ." 😀 @Not_Oles frequently messes up! 😱

  • MetalVPS has no billing panel and no server control panel. There are no preinstalled VPSes or containers. It's traditional, command line terminal via ssh until you install whatever you want. 🆕 You get a juicy VPS into which you can ssh and install whatever Open Source software you want. Maybe you also can get a traditional shell account on Crunchy. :star:

  • Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo on the Node, KVM group membership, etc. Note that @subenhon has Crunchy Node sudo. 🙈🙉🙊

  • MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. ♒︎

  • Account delivery might take awhile! 😴

  • Not for business use! Intended especially for computer learning and fun! 🤑

  • Frequent maintenance reboots are guaranteed! 🌺 VPSes in this offer are set to restart automatically following reboot. :)

  • Please make your own redundant, offsite backups! It's easy to download or sync or clone your backup to a safe place. Please also make sure that you actually can restore from your backups! 🤦‍♂️

  • Please think of your MetalVPS account as ephemeral! Our server might blow up! 💥 At any random second @Not_Oles or maybe you might reinstall the Node! 😸

  • Other MetalVPSians probably will see your name, your location, your account name, the processes you are running, and much other information. So, please do not put confidential information on the server. 🤔

    First!

    ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAIN4emHkCbrDflFRNfNMMVKP9yjxxT2NdqPGKAiEc3AN7 michael@optiplex790-2023-03-09

    Thanks @Not_Oles for another chance at allowing us to learn by doing, learn by reading, and learn by LEARNING!
    If you don't know already, promoting Privacy Is A Human Right is my passion. I run about a score of servers and most run Tor relays, with one exit currently. I have about half that number of domains but only a handful are active anywhere.
    But that's NOT really what I'm learning about atm.

    I'm trying to figure out Proxmox and put it on top of a VPS. I only started with this a couple of hours ago and I don't know if I'll dead-end (not deadpool lol) with it (as I frequently do with things that exceed my own complexity vs. time vs. patience formula), but I'd like to continue to work with that if it's even possible.

    Tighten up on server security. What works, what doesn't help much, what doesn't help at all, stuff like that.

    I want to self-host EVERYTHING! More specifically, I want to de-Google myself as much as possible (referencing my prior formula) and teach others the same, being mindful that free and convenient things sometimes come with a price - your privacy, your data, and maybe more. Doing stuff more privately is HARD! JFK something something....

    I discovered Cosmos recently and it was SO EASY and fit right into my formula. I want to tie stuff like that in with my servers and my portable Pixel 8 pseudo-ish Linux machine. Nextcloud, Immich are at the top of that to-do list.

    Docker! It seems hard. Those who have really embraced it seem to regret that they didn't get into using it earlier. I'd like to try it more at least.

    Stuff like that....

    lmk if you have any questions for me. Should I be accepted to rent one, I'll keep all the aforementioned terms in place with my actions: white-hat only, no commercial use, teach others so that I can learn more from others. All the things.

    Thanks again Tom!

    Michael

    Wow, Michael, that was fast! :) People might think you knew in advance! :) But, you didn't. :) Or, did you? :)

    Of course I remember you from the LA servers we had a few weeks ago.

    Please send $1.01 via Paypal to the email account on my LES profile. Will get around to activating your Crunchy account. . . .

    It's nice to see you again! :)

    Folks, only 3 spaces left!

    Hi Not_Oles ! I also would like to have one :).

    There are so many things to learn! Right now i am fighting to bring pure html websites back (instead of php XD). For ex. https://dperez.ga/

    I have sent you the money too :).

    @cpsd! Hi! Hi! Hi! Excellent! Funds received! It's getting a little late here, so I expect to provision your VPS in the morning, along with two others. Let me know, please, if you also want an account on the Node. :star:

    Guys! Only one (1) spot left!

    I hope everyone gets the servers they want!

    Folks, all four VPSes have been assigned. Maybe it will be possible to make a few more VPSes available in a little while, if after we find Crunchy still mostly idling. :)

    So, if nobody minds, and assuming someone wants one, I am thinking about giving out another group of four VPSes as specified in this thread's OP.

    @Lantern1368 @cpsd @sahjanivishal What do you think, please?

    Tom

    Yeah, it'd be great to have more people take benefit of Crunchy!

    Got a "yes" on more Neighbors from each of our current Crunchy Neighbors! Also, Crunchy doesn't look especially busy:

    root@crunchy:~# uptime
     03:31:56 up 6 days, 11:53,  3 users,  load average: 0.35, 0.31, 0.31
    root@crunchy:~# 
    

    So, maybe tomorrow, I will use bashvm to make four more Crunchy VPSes, Specs as per the OP, and then eventually give them out. Might take awhile. Might need a reboot.

    If you want a Crunchy VM, please do read the OP, and then please do post here.

    Thanks to our wonderful Crunchy Neighbors! <3

    Crunchy vm106 and vm107 now seem to be working. :) Thanks @crunchbits for wonderful Crunchy! <3

    I hope everyone gets the servers they want!

  • I don't want no VPS, but I sent a donation of $1.01, just because. Keep doing what you do.

    Hello! Payment received for 104 and 105. The guys on those two VMs have logged in successfully. Two more, 106 and 107, are still available if anyone is interested. Please read the OP before posting. Thanks to @crunchbits for wonderful Crunchy! <3

    I hope everyone gets the servers they want!

  • I want to buy this configuration you listed, how much does it cost? The forum I just registered is a rookie, but I have purchased the host to set up my own private online game. This configuration is quite satisfactory. It is particularly large and unable to run, suitable for my own single small games, so that I don't need to use a virtual machine. =)
